The Guild Shop is a Montrose area resale shop celebrating over 50 years of continuous business. A cross between “Antiques Roadshow” and your grandma’s attic, the Shop accepts donations and consignments of quality, gently used housewares, collectibles, furniture, rugs, art work, jewelry, and clothing for resale. The constantly revolving inventory is sold at incredible prices and deep discounts. The proceeds of these sales assist the elderly in need.
The Guild Shop was opened in 1962 by the Sewing Group of the Church of St. John the Divine. It is staffed almost entirely by volunteers. The Shop has given over $4,500,000 in donations to its primary beneficiary—St. James House, the Episcopal Diocesan retirement home in Baytown—and numerous other local charities such as Disabled American Veterans, Hospitality Apartments, Agape Ministries, Adult Protective Services, Freedom Place, Christian Community Service Center, The Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation, Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, and Goodwill Industries, just to name a few.
Our tagline, “Resale at its Best,” is well deserved. The Guild Shop has been voted Best Resale Shop in Houston by Click2Houston in 2010 and by The Houston Press in 2002, 2003, and 2008, and Best Used Furniture in Houston by The Houston Press in 2010. It continues to be a favorite stopping place for locals and visitors alike. Come see us at The Guild Shop!
